Thank you Backers! Missed the campaign? Head over to CameoCreeps.com for more information.
The Cameo Creeps™ are BACK with an all NEW set of grotesque Ladies and ghastly Lords!
Cameo Creeps are painstakingly detailed miniature monster portraits inspired by Elizabethan paintings of the past. What makes them unique is size. Each Cameo Creep reproduction is a unique miniature piece of art for you to collect.
Greetings! I'm Chris Seaman. By day I work as a freelance illustrator in games. You may have seen my work in Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: the Gathering, Hearthstone and Harry Potter to name a few. By night I turn into the Cameo-Creepster and work on my passion project the Cameo Creeps: Tiny Monster Paintings.
Thanks to my previous Backers I was able to unearth the Cameo Creeps for all. But now I need your help to continue to travel with the Ferryman across the river Styx. I'm releasing an all NEW set of Cameo Creeps exclusively through this campaign.
The funds raised from this Kickstarter will allow me to make the next set of Cameo Creeps as I embark on releasing them outside of the asylum, and with your help, expand the Creeps brand into other mysterious dark alleys.
Every Cameo Creep will come in a grotesquely designed blister and carded back with full color front and back graphics, retail ready, measuring 5 1/4" X 7 1/4" along with a unique name tag and designated set number.
All reproductions are high quality hand-varnished prints set in a unique custom manufactured black and hand-painted gold cameo frame (3 1/4" X 4 1/16" X 11/16"). Because spooky is in the details.
For this campaign I'm releasing an all NEW Set, NEW Kickstarter Exclusives, NEW Original Art and NEW Product Lines. Make your choice(s) and get new Cameo Creeps content!
These girls just can't be apart! Each Gholden Ghoul comes carded for maximum collectability. Stay Golden with these Exclusives in hand painted gold custom cameo frames and hand varnished high quality reproduction.
I'm excited to share that I'll be offering this Unpainted Resin-Kit Mini Bust of Sir Zombert Braincleaver! Standing approximately 5 inches tall and sculpted by Fantasy Flight Games sculptor Cory DeVore. Cory lends his expertise in 3D Sculpting to bring this intricately detailed Sir Zombert to life.
Due to the fact that each reward or add-on of a Creep increases the weight of shipping it's difficult for Kickstarter's platform to tabulate. I've decided the best solution is to use BackerKit for Shipping. It's easy! I'll send you a survey, pick your Creeps and pay for the shipping fees. In BackerKit you'll also have the option to add more Creeps and other Products in the store. Once done, hit submit.
You can expect an estimated cost per Creep to be around $3 USD Domestic and $5- $10 USD International depending on your country. I learned a lot from the last campaign about shipping International and will try my best to keep the customs cost down for you ( I cannot guarantee your counties additional Custom fees.)
Now, let's get to the good stuff...

Risks and challenges
I'm happy to say that all the parts for this Kickstarter were put in place by the previous Creeps Kickstarter. I'll be using the same manufacturer for the frames, same printer and same assembly team. In four weekends we were able to assemble the first 1000 Cameo Creeps and this time we hope to streamline that to make it faster. There still are some unknown elements to this campaign particularly shipping internationally. Since this campaign offers several different rewards all weighing differing amounts ALL shipping will be handle through BackerKit after the campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
